I have no doubt that all Yummy fans are refined diners in their respective ways and they have specific tastes and preferences. Your views on this piece will be greatly altered on what  constitutes  eating out at  restaurants  in other continents.

READER BE WARE: NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!

In China the toilet themed restaurants are a hit with various establishments opening up in cities like Hangzhou, Shanghai, Chonqing and Kunming.

There are even establishments in  Korea and Japan that are set up with the same theme.

Yes, it sounds like  something  out of  Ripleys  believe it or not but thats a fad that has taken over in China.

The decor in the restaurants resembles a bathroom and is complete with showers on the walls and toilets for seats

The names of some of the restaurants translated do not sound so appealing like Pian pian man wu translates to ‘House full of poo…yet this has not stopped people from enjoying the cuisine in these bizzare establishments.

The irony is that despite the chain of ‘loo’ restaurant in China, most eateries do not have their own toilet and customers often have to use public lavatories in the streets outside.

Other  weird  dining experiences that can be found in Beijing are Kung-fu themed restaurants, Hello Kitty restaurants and this totally restrictive one, an 80’s schoolroom  restaurant  that only serves patrons who went to school during that decade. proof of ID is required!

The bizzare themed restaurants are not only isolated to the Asian continent and in Europe, there is The Hospitalis restaurant in Riga, Lativia where the  delicacies range from cakes resembling human organs to bandages on a dentist’s chair.

Waiters serving customers dress up in doctor and nurse uniforms. There is also the option of being  tied in a straitjacket and have your meal spoonfed to you!
